Lee Foss, recent Essential Mix champ and Hot Creations label head, is out today with his latest EP, Electricity. The native Chicagoan’s title track, a collaboration with MK (full name Mark Kinchen) and vocalist Anabel Englund is an unbelievably stirring track. Englund’s stripped and simple vocals paired with Foss and MK’s slow-moving but breathtaking breaks equal grade A baby-making music. A side track 2 of the EP belongs to “Goodnight Moon,” a tune that turns dow the sex but turns up the intricacy with a parade of unique synths, percussions, and of course, a killer bass line.
Turning to the B side, Foss ventures back through the soulful side of his hometown’s past on “Could Be,” without leaving behind his Hot Creations groove and a chromatic mid-lines. The most surprising addition to the EP for us, however, was the final track “B5 the Dinks,” which samples a scene from Pryzbylewski’s classroom in The Wire Season 4 and manages to roll thinly veiled social commentary into an uptempo deep house track.
